A review is a critical evaluation of a text, event, object, or phenomenon.
Reviews can consider books, articles, entire genres or fields of literature,
architecture, art, fashion, restaurants, policies, exhibitions, performances, and many other forms.
This handout will focus on reviews. For a similar assignment, see our handout on literature reviews.
Above all, a review makes an argument.
The most important element of a review is that it is a commentary, not merely a summary.
It allows you to enter into dialogue and discussion with the work’s creator and with other audiences.
You can offer agreement or disagreement and identify where you find the work exemplary
or deficient in its knowledge, judgments, or organization.
You should clearly state your opinion of the work in question,
and that statement will probably resemble other types of academic writing,
with a thesis statement, supporting body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
